I've been to the Haus of Yarn, everything else I know about these places comes from the http://www.knitty.com forums:

1.  The Haus of Yarn, on White Bridge Road in Nashville.  No website that I know of.  When I've been in there, the people working have been really snotty and no help at all.  And I spent over $100 in like 15 minutes. From what I've read on Knitty, you pretty much have a 50/50 chance of getting someone helpful.  I'm sure they're open on Saturdays, but possibly only until 12:00, closed on Sunday. They do have a little club thing that you get a stamp on a card for every $20 you spend and after a certain amount you get a discount.

2.  Angel Hair Yarn Company on Hillsboro Pike in Nashville.  (heard that it's huuuge)  http://www.angelhairyarn.com
Great reviews on Knitty, I'm going there the next time I can afford more yarn.

3.  I've also heard that Needlework Plus in Murfreesboro has a small selection of yarn, but I've never been there.

There's a shop that I've been to in Brentwood. Its called Threaded Bliss. They have a site also. Everyone there seemed pretty helpful. I am just learning to knit so I needed lots of help. The shop is pretty cute too.

Needlework Plus went out of business last October Cry. I got most of my Addi Turbos from them for 30-40% off!!!!! Shocked Shocked Shocked

Stitchin Post has a small selection of yarn that are reasonably priced.

Greetings, Tennesseans!  I'm in Nashville and recently registered with Craftster.

The Stitchin' Post (mentioned in the above post) was in Harding Mall but has recently moved into the Berryhill area.  The address is 2811 Columbine Place.  It's a short bit off of East Iris.  If coming from the Franklin area just take I-65 to Armory Dr and then Powell over to Bransford Ave.

Here's a Google map http://maps.google.com/maps?q=2811+Columbine+Place+nashville+tn&hl=en

Cheers Smiley

I'm visiting cookeville and was wondering if anyone knows of yarn stores there? There's gotta be some Tenn Tech students that knit, right?

My two favorites have been mentioned.... Threaded Bliss and Angel Hair Yarn.

Now as for my opinions... Angel Hair Yarn is wonderful, in a pretty good location (Green Hills) and its my personal favorite. Threaded Bliss is also very nice, and yes... very friendly. VERY friendly. Not that I mind but I'm semi-shy, and they are very upfront and sorta loud. But don't let that distract you. They certainly make you feel very welcome. Its just a little much for me.

So! Yeah, have fun with that Smiley

live to love, love to live.

The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return
